Healthy Vegan Fridays #148

**Special HVF Update It is with heavy hearts that Mary Ellen and I would like to announce next Friday, April 28th will be our very last Healthy Vegan Friday. We have loved so very much hosting these weekly potluck parties, especially getting to know all of you. We really feel like we have a little family that has grown over time. Many of you have been with us from the start and have supported us and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate this. And some of you are newer and we love that you have found us and shared with us. Most of you know that I recently started a job and my time commitments are shifting and it’s hard for me to figure out what I can continue with, sadly I just don’t think this is one of them. I still want to keep blogging as it’s something I really enjoy and I’ve made so many wonderful blogging besties, but I think it’s time to let HVF go. Thank you for everything Image result for teal heart emoji

Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Easy Vegan French Pâtisserie Fruit Tarts from A Sprinkle of Vanilla Sugar:

One of the things I love best about this blog is the writing. You can curl up with a cup of tea and read it like a good book. It almost transports you to a whole, new place. And the food. Oh the food. I spied these pâtisserie and mistakenly assumed they couldn’t possibly be gluten free. But I was pleasantly surprised. They are! And they sound easy to make and leave your guests with a wow factor. These will be made for my next dinner party for sure.

Vegan Hot Cross Buns from Masala Vegan:

Oh I can almost smell these pillowy golden buns right now. Although they are great for Easter, I think they would be something fun to enjoy any time of year for a sweet treat for breakfast. Or made for company while serving tea. Fancy.

Raw Key Lime Pie from Veggies Save the Day:

In Amy’s post, we get a sneak peak at the Blossom Cookbook with this stellar dessert recipe. Although I would love to check out the Blossom Restaurant in New York, it’s a bit far for me, so at least I can try making some of their food at home. And why not start with this dinner party worthy dessert? Yum!

Easy Black Beans & Rice from Running in a Skirt:

Now that I’m a working girl, I have so much less time for cooking. It’s a bummer for me, especially since some nights I find myself ordering pizza :/ It’s recipes like this that will help me keep on track with meal planning. Quick, easy recipes without sacrificing healt or taste. This would make a great lunch too!

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Overnight Oats:Blueberry-Lemon-Cheesecake-Overnight-Oats-1

Speaking of saving time… making breakfast the night before is a huge time saver! Especially the one day a week where I teach a dance class before work. Ain’t no one got time for breakfast after that. But I can make this delectable dish the night before and pack it to go (and eat at my desk while I work haha). Blueberries and lemons are one of my favourite combinations (… right up there with chocolate and pb!). And that cream cheese topping… omg. Way to get excited about breakfast!

I’m sharing my Rhubarb Lentil Soup:

Rhubarb doesn’t always have to be sweet ‘ya know! It can be savoury and it’s oh-so-good! I make this for Terry and I whenever one of us is sick. So it got made twice in the past two weeks. Not super fun, but at least we got a delicious, warm, comforting sweet/savoury bowl of awesome to help us get healthy again.

We’d love it if you link up and bring some friends to the party! We’ll be pinning and sharing your tasty treats on social media!

  1. Aw! I’m so sad that these will be over soon. I like seeing what people are making and sharing. I totally for sure understand the time commitment thing though, and it is very hard to keep up a blog when you’re super busy. I wish you the best of luck though with your new job!!! I hope it is an excellent fit!

  2. waaaaah – I will miss Healthy Vegan Fridays but I do understand that there are only so many hours in a day – it must be hard to try and work out what has to go to keep your sanity – I am very sad it is HVF but glad you will keep blogging. Must make sure I put something in for your last hurrah! Many thanks for all the effort you have put into all these HVF posts – you have done a great job of creating a community around the event that I have loved being party of.

    1. I’m sad too :( It’s like a fun little party we have each week. I honestly have no idea how you manage working with Sylvia. I am beat each day after work. I have a serious appreciation for parents who work. It’s basically having two jobs.
      Thank you for the kind words – I really appreciate that. And we will still be blogging buddies of course =)

  3. Oh I am sorry to read this. I will really miss Healthy Vegan Fridays as I’ve participated ever since I discovered it, but I completely understand that it is hard work, but appreciate that you will both continue to blog and stay in touch with us all. Once again, thank you so much to the both of your for being absolutely fantastic hosts, you have both always come by and commented on contributions for HVF not many blogging hosts do that, only wishing for traffic to their site – you have risen above that and stayed true. It is through you both that I have discovered many new blogs and wonderful vegan recipes. Thank you for letting me be a part of Happy Vegan Fridays xx.

    1. HVF is how we met! Thank you for the kind words Shaheen. I honestly don’t even check the traffic for my site – I just don’t care about that. Blogging is sharing food and making friends for me =) I’m so glad we have met and I look forward to being blogging friends.

  4. Hi Kimmy,
    Thank you for hosting HVF for so long. It is definitely my favorite source for delectable vegan recipes and inspiration. I know what you mean about work and commitments. Balancing everything else with blogging is very challenging. I am so happy to have met you and your blog and I will keep on visiting to see what yummy dishes you are creating. All the best, Deborah

    1. It is tough finding that work/life balance. As sad as it makes me, I think this will help with that. I’m so fortunate to have met such a great blogger. I will of course share all of my recipes on your amazing blog hop still 😉

  5. Thank you so much for hosting HVF– I’m sad that it’s coming to an end, but I appreciate all the time and effort you put in to make it such a wonderful and delicious resource! :) Good luck with everything, Kimmy!

  6. Sad to see this end but it’s completely understandable! Thank you both for leading HVF as long as you have!

    As a working lady myself, I highly recommend Meal mentor.com’s plans. the recipes are unbelievably quick and easy…And all healthy and vegan!

    1. Aw thanks Diana. Oooh! Thanks for the recommendation – I totally need more quick & easy recipes in my life. It’s been rough adjusting to not having nearly as much time to make meals :/
